I'm really tempted to say this has been my best hostel experience ever, and I've been around the block once or twice...
The location simply cannot be beaten, right in the center of Sultanahmet, but in a very quiet street. I slept great.
The staff was simply the best. Farki, Emre and Amy were always in the best mood and ready to help you with your every need.
Loved the breakfast, very typical of the region, delicious and plentiful.
I also loved my private room, great balcony.
Thanks, guys.

I highly recommend mansion by cheers hostel. I have been there for 10 days and it was an amazing stay. Emre and his wife are very reactive and helpful, they gave us a lot of information and guidance (They even helped us to book in a restaurant for my birthday) we will have a different experience with them, as if you are hosted by your friends and you’ll easily meet new people every day.
The hostel is near to main attraction (you can go by foot), but still so calm and very clean.

Room Tip: ask for a room with air-conditioner

The place was one of best stays we have had in our whole trip to Europe this month. The host Mr. Emre was very helpful in helping us planning the important places to visit over our short visit. Both me and my wife were in love with the two kittens at this place. Sharing your love with a pet (especially cats) is core to a tourist's experience while travelling Istanbul. The house is a pretty old one and redecorated as a funky place. Just note that if you are walking your way to the hostel from the nearby tram station, expect quite a few steep roads on your way, but the stay is worth it. Thanks Emre for making our stay special!
